Sweet home Alabama

This card is for my Auntie who will be moving in the next few weeks, not quite as far as Alabama but to Renfrewshire in Scotland. Before becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I had never bought any of their Stampin' around wheels, but when I joined I picked this one, the neighborhood jumbo wheel. It is such great fun and a really quick way to make a super card (well I think so hee hee).

A happy coincidence too that the fabby Lesley who is also in Scotland has very kindly honoured me with a blogging award. Thank you so much Lesley - please pop by as she has the cutest projects :D

Dare I say it more sunshine today, hope my efforts from yesterday to send it your way worked. Big candy draw tonight at 8.00pm - sooooo exciting, I will reveal the lucky winner tomorrow morning :D GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow x

Emma, What a super sweet card, I love it. It's helped make my mind up to buy one of those roller stamps things [propbably not the correct word] Hopefully the sunshine will continue as it's my little ones 3rd birthday tomorrow and it would be great to get out and about with him so what ever you did yesterday to make the sunshine please can you do it again tomorrow :)
How are you enjoying you hoildays with your little one?
Take Care - Ju xxx

Great card, I love the Neighbourhood wheel, I've got a card scheduled this morning using it too, but I love your card and I think I may well be casing it if that's ok?

Great card Emma, I like the way you have used it slightly on a slant, looks really effective, I have one of these SU roller stamps and I love it.

Fab use of the wheel Emma! Such a bright card and I love your sentiment - the Oooh part really makes me smile!
I think your sunshine vibes worked - we had a fab last half of the week in Abersoch, even had to slap on the suncream!
